    Ticket Price: 
    £12

    Simon tells us that his project with bassist AMY BALDWIN is often a duo - but tonight we have a piano trio with drummer JON SCOTT.
    The music is inspired by Scot LaFaro and Bill Evans and In terms of audience, the repertoire is certainly recognisable for most jazz folk. However, there is also some counterpoint - a 'vibe' and concept that makes the music different from blowing through familiar standards. Amy is a great soloist and the trio has worked hard on the 'trio sound'..........it does SWING too !!
